I put the album on yesterday, and suddenly I had an urge to watch the film, and after watching it I became extremely confused, "why is this soundtrack bonding with me so much, when it's the type of music I usually consider as throwaway? why do I want to cry a stream of tears whenever I hear the first track?"

and then I wondered, "wow, this soundtrack hits you so profoundly in the feels it's unfathomable."

When music makes you have feelings like that, shit’s on another level then, and they just won the game.

Let's Agree: The 'Tarara Women's Work Song' is without a doubt one of the best in the soundtrack, and it can be replayed to oblivion.

Haven't seen yet. I'm missing a couple Miyazaki films, but I've been getting on it. They're all superb.

Also, I agree with something said by rellik. Every single time, the music in Miyazaki films makes me tear up. I've cried in *all* of his movies. Especially Spirited Away, I cry throughout the entire fucking movie.

Yeah, this is probably my favorite Miyazaki movie too. Spirited Away is close, but Mononoke edges it out ever so slightly.

my favourite movie ever tbh



also ghibli bros should not forget whispers of the heart - one of their very best and such a sad fact that yoshifumi kondo died shortly after

That's one of the few I still have to see. Now that it's on Netflix I have no excuses anymore so I'll get on that soon Sint. This is my favorite by them but there are none I have disliked (though the first time I've watched Kaguya I was close to disliking it. That ending was gut-wrenching and unfulfilling, but I've learned to appreciate it over time).

i know what you mean with kaguya, the animation definitely carried the movie too heavily for me the first few times I saw it, but yeah I love it now



only two i don't recommend to people are tales of earthsea for being a really weak and poorly-paced adaptation of fantastic source material, and my neighbors the yamadas for being completely different from everything else they've done and a pretty gruelling watch, although whether that's a failure to translate to a western perspective or it's meh in japan too idk

Earthsea is on my tbr pile and I think I made a wise decision to watch it before reading it, knowing that it's very far removed from the book. I thought it was fine, but not to Ghibli's standards. From the ones I've seen I would rank them as:

- Mononoke

- Spirited Away

- Nausicaa

- Porco Rosso

- Totoro

- Kiki

- Howl

- Pom Poko

- Castle in the Sky

- Kaguya

- Ponyo

- Earthsea
